Today I am making good on my promise to defend our Farmers & Ranchers from unjustified trade retaliation by foreign nations. I have authorized Secretary Perdue to implement the 2nd round of Market Facilitation Payments. Our economy is stronger than ever–we stand with our Farmers!
Takeaway: Further subsidies for US farmers... necessary because of retaliatory tariffs on US agricultural exports arising from Trump initiated Sino-US trade war.
(Market Facilitation Payment = euphemism for farm subsidy)
